2022 Monarch Butterfly Proclamation

Mayors and other heads of local and tribal government are taking action to help save the monarch butterfly, an iconic species whose eastern populations have declined by 90% and western populations by 99% in recent years. Through the National Wildlife Federation’s Mayors’ Monarch Pledge, U. S. Cities, municipalities and other communities are coming to create habitat for the monarch butterfly and pollinators, and to educate residents about how they can make a difference at home and in their community. The Alamo City Commission has issued a proclamation declaring September 25th, 2022 as Mayor’s Monarch Pledge Day in the City of Alamo and have committed to expand their current butterfly gardens within the city and to continue to educate the community on the monarch butterfly cause.
